About the Little Fir Foundation
Little Fir Foundation wants to give talented children from China, who otherwise wouldn't have access to higher education, a chance to not only to receive more opportunities, but also to succeed in life. We provide tuition assistance to selected underprivileged children, we fund schools, and other institutions that house programs that aim to enhance the quality of education in rural China. We select students from elementary school and provide financial support all the way through college. What's more important, we work on developing a community that provides one-on-one mentoring to all grant recipients so individual can serve as guides who are available to accompany them on their journey.
